I am very new and have some questions about what chocolate I should buy to mold Easter chocolates in vintage tin molds which I purchased on ebay. Should I be looking at couverture chocolate? Do I…Continue

"Thank you so much, Kerry. Now I know. I will follow the instructions which Gap gave above for hollow molded eggs. It will be fun trying."

Kerry replied to Donna Roesink's discussion Can anyone help me with how to use this metal egg mold?
"Yup - that would be traditionally hollow. You could put some little eggs inside and glue the two sides together. "

"And two more photos. This is how the bottom looks-it is mounted on wood."

"Here are photos of it. So it sounds like this mold only makes hollow eggs. That's okay."

"I don't know that you can make a successful solid egg with that mold with the flange in place.  I tend to make my eggs in two pieces then heat both sides on a heated sheet pan and gluing them together."

Donna Roesink replied to Donna Roesink's discussion Can anyone help me with how to use this metal egg mold?
"Yes, Kerry, the flange is what I have on this mold. (I looked almost to the end of your link and I see a flat metal piece like the one on my mold) The mold makes three eggs, side by side. They are about 5" long. There are two sides to the mold,…"

"http://www.oldmolds.com/SpecialEggs.htm Scroll down this page - there are several eggs with flanges - I wonder if this is what you are describing? "

Kerry replied to Donna Roesink's discussion Can anyone help me with how to use this metal egg mold?
"If it's the sort of mold I think it is - the piece between the two molds provides a decorative edge on one side of the egg and allows you to have a two piece egg.   I always toast nuts before adding to chocolate.  "

Gap replied to Donna Roesink's discussion Can anyone help me with how to use this metal egg mold?
"Hi Donna, sorry, but I can't picture what you mean by the hinges but I haven't seen anything like you're describing before. Maybe someone else can chime in? Solid eggs can be done depending on the size of the mould. If it's too…"

"Thank you, Gap. I really appreciate you taking the time to answer! I have a few other questions for you, if you don't mind. Do you know what the thin metal plate is in the middle of the two sides of the mold? It is on piano type hinges, and is…"

Gap replied to Donna Roesink's discussion Can anyone help me with how to use this metal egg mold?
"Hard to say without seeing it. My guess is: 1. Temper your chocolate 2. Polish the inside of your metal mould with cotton wool 3. Smear a thin layer of tempered chocolate on the inside of the mould using your finger 4. Let it set 5a (if the mould…"

Can anyone help me with how to use this metal egg mold?

I would like to mold some eggs with tempered chocolate and pecans for my family this Easter. I purchased a beautiful metal mold on ebay. It makes a nice three D egg. Each side of the mold is three dimensional, and there is a metal piece in between both sides. There are clips to clamp the mold tight, and one half of the mold is set in a wood base. It looks like it was used commercially.  How do I use this mold? I don't know where to start. Please be gentle-I am a hobbyist, and not a…See More
